Chantecaille Gel Liner Pencil

I am a sucker for innovation.  So, it wasn’t tough to get me to try the first ever gel liner in a wooden pencil format.  Add in an amazingly high quality brush on the other end and I was sold.

Chantecaille recently released this pencil in two colors: Jet and Hematite.  Jet was stunning, but the smokey, metallic grey called my name.  The color is quite dark, and full of pigment.  But it is a great alternative to black.  You definitely can detect the silver/grey when applied, but its effect is still inky.

The application is exactly like a gel liner applied with a brush.  There was no pulling, but the application lent to precision.  Flipping over to the other side, the brush was perfect for fine-tuning and striking the perfect mini-wing.

Just like other gel liners, the liner stayed like a champ all day.  And there is something so retro and rewarding, sharpening that wooden pencil, old-fashioned style.
